Street

Static State

Ben Gore recently demonstrated that he was as skilled behind a video camera as he is behind a photographic lens; now here he is again, eager to remind us all of how much he's also the boss on the other side of the lens! The proof is in the footage, in this clip in which he shares the timeline with Christian Maalouf, Kevin Coakley, Brian Powerdly and Jon N'Guyen, celebrating the release of a new collaboration line between State Footwear and Theories, Josh Stewart's labor of love. Actually, it's also Josh who's responsible for the VX and editing here, being again as proficient as he is prolific and guess what: nobody's going to complain about that!

"ERORI" / WASTED / PREMIERE

"ERORI" is the name of the new Wasted video, filmed over about ten days whilst on a trip to Zaragoza, Spain. LIVE here, and now!

The great Olivier Fanchon was in charge of the editing, and found some time to spare to present his newborn to you in a few paragraphs, just below...

PLAY!

"PLAY!" is the name of a new exhibition of colorful, ephemeral and skatable structures soon to be scattered throughout Bordeaux, here and there from June 20th to August 20th, 2019. An initiative pushed by local non-profit organization Board'O as part as the municipal program "Liberté !", conceived by Leo Valls and Nicolas Malinowsky who again ponder the evolution of the quantity of space left within the urban environment for playful, skateboarding purposes and other fundamental individual liberties. As a teaser for this summer, here's a skate clip filmed by Doug Guillot, Pierre David and Yentl Touboul inside the Bordeaux National Opera - pretty please!

"Entre Deux" / premiere

Two friends, one longing for fresh air, fresh pavement… Leave their hometown of Lyon, but to head where? Over the Alps, at least, to visit their colleague "Pepe"! Turino is not that far, but as exotic as any any other city that is not listed of the obvious skate meccas. And a city, with the right guide, will deliver.

You got the premises, now dive into this Ludovic Azémar short, teased yesterday by Louis Perruchaud's photo gallery, and get inspired to look for that fresh air you crave too.

LIVE SB REPORT

What’s a city? Its people, we say… More than its architectural specifics or urban furniture. Because they are making the doing and undoing, the everyday life of the city, and pumps in and out the blood into its streets.
This is why, when came the idea to shoot a snapshot of Paris in its Now, we all looked at Augustin Giovannoni, because he knows everybody, because he is everywhere at the same time, and because he always knows what is up. He is skateboarding in Paris. And it has been true since we launched LIVE –and even before that– despite his young age. Here lies his very own take on his city, one that belongs as much to its locals as its visitors. He’s crossed paths with them all, during a year, and here is what he made of it all.
A report supported by Nike SB, illuminated by Alexis Jamet’s animations and put in music by Matias Elichabehere, through a custom fit new track.

More Medium!

Throughout the years and their subsequent takes on what makes "A Happy Medium", the Buster and Hunter O'Shea brothers really never stopped regularly and repeatedly showcasing how tight of a grip the purpose of representing the Arizona skate scene has on their existence! Already a decade ago, the first installment in the series already wasn't their first full-length effort and since then, they have birthed three more and that's if you don't count (but why wouldn't you?) their side productions such as Sometimes Skateboards (and its video) on the side... Arid sun-bathed, 3CCD-armed workhorses! Anyway, this fifth "A Happy Medium" is looking like a comeback to the roots, a turn the guys already started to initiate last year with the fourth edition: Marty Anderson, balloons... The aesthetics of the first piece of the series is not just present, but repeated in full force and whilst some might find it funny that their love for skateboarding seemingly crystallized sometime around 2008 (... things could have been a lot worse), their skateboarding itself really didn't, as legends such as Johnrob Moore or John Motta only seem to get younger as they age. We can't wait!

What an ad, Venture

Someone else's trucks of choice shouldn't be anybody's concern, just as much as their own should be their main focus, always... Or not, but what is for sure is that Venture Trucks' new power move in terms of roster edification just manifested itself under the form of four minutes and forty-nine seconds of brand new Bobby Worrest, packed with improbable Pulaski lines and various maneuvers bound to make the interwebs spin. All hail transfers!

A. A. alert!

"…like an angel!"

Another skate clip?

When I grow up, I wanna skate like Nik Stain! How about you? Him, or Vincent Touzery…

No pun intended

"HI8US" is the new video confession from S.F. hills' very own Papa Smurf: Ben Gore, pro chez Magenta, world renowned for his power and flick just as much as for his sharp eye, whether behind some kind of photographic lens or not. "A video about a tripod", or so he claims; a deceptively humble description as the edit is stuffed to the brim with genius skateboarding (and the occasional stunt) authored by Brian Delatorre, Ryan Barlow, Roger Krebs, Chris Athans, Trevor Thompson, Brian Powderly, Ben himself and then a handful of more, even. All in the name of his project: Three Press, and conveying some serious Dan Wolfe vibes, but transposed to the current S.F. scene.

Flaco 2: The return

Lakai gives Stevie Perez a second signature shoe, and logically after the Flaco comes the Flaco 2. For those who wish to see how they look once in the heart of the action, the first interested, Stevie Perez in person, allowed himself to destroy some spots (a lot) for the occasion. Filmed with a Vx in the rules of art by Kevin Martinez, the style is clean, relaxed almost casual, to believe that every trick of this part has been landed first try.

Caddo-netics

Dave Caddo, I first heard about him on a rainy day at Cide, a now defunct London skateshop, where his very first part was on heavy rotation, before eventually bump into him, somewhere between Brooklyn and Queens alongside Puleo. Time has passed since, but this man keeps on delivering when it comes to make spots spit what they got to offer, from finding them to knowing how to handle them. Yep, he's got it, and always had!
